Compassionate and insightful, he offers constructive suggestions for transforming the energy of anger into a new way of engaging life. I recommend it most highly.

While this book says it is for men, I found as a woman reading it that it held much of value for all humans, and in the places where it specifically addressed the concerns men have- it was, for me, a useful meditation on the experiences men have growing up and living in our culture.
I will definitely be using this book in every class I teach from now on. My highest recommendation. And to Dr. Bankart: Thank you. Through your words and sharing this book you have been my teacher.
I do not see myself as "angry", but I found so many helpful ways in improving my outlook on life and strengthening my relationship with my kids and my wife. I wish I read this 15 years ago...
With its foundation in Buddhist philosophy, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy (C.B.T.), Bankart lays out a series of ideas and techniques and stories designed to support men struggling with anger. That said, this book does not offer quick fixes or easy answers; rather, it is offers a path that requires no small amount of courage, honesty, and hard work on the part of the angry man. As Maurits G.T. Kwee says in one of the blubs, "Freeing the Angry Mind" offers "an original palette of procedures from various other sources...that have the capacity to strengthen...if practiced diligently."
In my view, the meeting of the reader's effort with Bankart's map will almost certainly "save lives and relationships." This is a book that can help. And goodness knows that those kinds of books are oh-so-rare. Again, if you think this might be for you, it is. Pick it up immediately if not sooner.
